could be that they don't really have a defensive mechanism and if they get attacked they just cop it and get stressed.

just guessing here

Copperbands are very delicate fish to begin with. They also have extreme issues with eating. They get stressed very easily and combined with their lack of eating usually dictates why they dont make it. I had one that lasted well over a year until I accidentally killed it with an overdose of flatworm exit. :-( Since then I have tried on three different occassions to keep one all three with no success.
I take ultra care of my fish, I feed whatever I need to and take great care in selecting tankmates and yet the three died within weeks of adding them.
The one I did have that thrived i attribute to the care it received at the lfs before i took him home. he was wt'd for 3 months and trained to eat by hand, he was an awesome, maybe one in a million fish. Some people can get lucky with them but a cast majority do not do well in home aquaria.

Really sorry yours didnt make it, its always very sad when something we love and put effort into doesnt so well like we had hoped.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Dang that stinks he was my favorite little guy. Yea he was eating great he loved brine shrimp he would follow around my needle cause I target feed my corals and he'd follow that thing around like crazy and pick up left overs but in pretty sure he got best up by the tang cause when I came down stair he was all flared up and whipping him with his tail.

Sorry to hear about the loss. That is never fun. They are extremely difficult fish to keep, even in the best settings with the best care.

As was stated in another post...I would really reconsider getting the Yellow Tang out of there. Health issues will come down the road due to the tank being too small, but if this one was attacking the Copperband, it will likely do the same to future additions.
